"AirSculpt Waist, Flanks, Hips Was Lifechanging! - I've always struggled with losing unwanted fat and weight in my love handles, hips, and sides. I had researched so many procedure options and by far Airsculpt had the best results for the price+safety. My overall procedure and post care went great! I had very minimal swelling and I am over the moon with my results! I would recommend to anyone searching for permanent results and next to no down time involved. Also, Dr. Hanz was the best! I was pretty nervous going in, and they calmed me down and explained in detail everything the procedure entailed."- N. / RealSelf / Dec 29, 2021
"I recently started Sciton Halo and Sciton BBL treatments with Amy Sanders. Amy took the time to explain each of the treatments and what to expect before, during and after treatments. Amy’s post care attention went above and beyond making herself available by phone for any and all questions and concerns. On my follow-up appointment, I was so encouraged when I realized the entire office staff was almost as excited for my results as I was. After just one treatment of both, I have already seen such a positive improvement to my face and chest areas. I live in the San Antonio area and feel my trips up to Dr. Hanz’s office for my aesthetic procedures are 100% worth it. Dr. Hanz and his staff are wonderful and I highly recommend!"- TS / Office Visit / Apr 03, 2022
"Dr. Hanz is Amazing...straight forward, exactly what we were looking for in a surgeon. His staff was pleasant and very helpful. Would go a back for any future procedures. Thank you Dr. Hanz for your help."- K.C. / Google / Jan 27, 2022
"I had gained a lot of weight during covid and with a full time job and kids I found it hard to manage healthy eating and frequent exercise. I went to Dr. Kevin Hanz and met with his amazing staff. They recommended a weight loss drug called ozempic or semiglutide. I have been taking one dose a week at home and have lost 20 pounds in 19 weeks! Nothing else has changed in my daily routine. All of my cravings for wine and snacks has completely gone away. When I do have a meal I find I only eat about half. I have had no side effects other than a little exhaustion the day after I take it. Kevin's office staff has been amazing and I would recommend this 10/10! I had tried lipo and cool sculpting in the past and lost no where near as much weight as I have on ozempic!"- L.I. / Google / Jan 26, 2023
"Shocked at Amazing Results - removed 90-95% of the sun spots and freckles - I had laser resurfacing (using Cartessa Tetra CO2 laser) to my face and chest with Dr Hanz. I owned a tanning salon for years and my sun damage was horrible. I thought this could help. I was shocked at how it removed 90-95% of the sun spots and freckles. Also diminished the “leathery” looking skin on my chest. My friends are all in disbelief of how good I look now!"- P. / RealSelf / Jan 25, 2023
What are the benefits of body contouring?
Life events like pregnancy and drastic weight loss can change your shape and make you feel less than satisfied with your appearance. Small fat pockets and loose skin can be very difficult to resolve through exercise and diet alone. Body contouring surgery is a great way to achieve a more toned, healthy-looking you. Body contouring at Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery allows people of all shapes and backgrounds to feel great about themselves and their bodies again.
Would I Be Able to Have Body Contouring?
Body contouring may help someone who has sagging skin, deflated body parts (such as the breasts or buttocks), or fat in areas that are simply hard to lose. The lower back, hips, flanks (love handles), neck, and abdomen are common examples of areas where fat deposits can collect, causing unsightly bulges. Great candidates for body contouring in Dallas, TX are individuals who:
- Are at a healthy and ideal weight
- Are able to maintain that weight
- Desire a tighter, more defined body
- Do not have a medical condition that may impair their ability to heal
How Does Body Contouring Work?
At Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Dallas, TX residents can receive body contouring for troublesome areas of their otherwise healthy body. Many people consider body contouring on their stomach, waist, buttocks, hips, thighs, or arms to reduce areas of fat and create a slimmer or smoother appearance of a troublesome area. During your consultation, Dr. Hanz will devise a treatment plan for your desired outcomes and discuss realistic expectations. The goal during body contouring surgery is to create very small incisions that will remove unwanted fat and excess skin, leaving a slimmer, tighter appearance.
What Should I Expect with Body Contouring?
If you only received one procedure, you will be sent home to recover. In the event you chose to have multiple procedure, it could require you staying overnight. Dr. Kevin Hanz will discuss post-op scenarios with you as you create your body-contouring plan. Body contouring is meant to sculpt the body so you will start notice a slimmer, tighter body and a more defined physique within six weeks, while it typically takes 2 – 3 months for full results to be shown. Results should be long-lasting as long as you maintain your stable weight. Dr. Hanz will discuss follow-up appointments as necessary.
Frequently Asked Questions about Body Contouring
How much will body contouring surgery cost me?
The cost for body contouring will be based on what's included in your treatment plan. Once your plan is made, Dr. Hanz will be better able to estimate costs and discuss your options for payment. Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery accepts many payment types, including low-interest financing.
Will insurance pay for my body contouring surgery?
While most elective surgeries aren't usually covered by insurance, it is possible that body contouring could be eligible for insurance coverage if loose skin is causing medical problems. Coverage varies based on your insurance carrier and individual policy, but if you would like to submit an insurance claim, please let Dr. Hanz know during your consultation. A member of our team at Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery can help you work with your insurance for maximum coverage.
What will be part of my body contouring surgery?
The combination of procedures will be decided in your consultation with Dr. Hanz. Your body contouring may be done in stages based on your general health and how many areas are being addressed. Typically, the grouping will be with a combination of either the upper body parts (stomach, breasts, arms, face, neck) or the lower body (butt, thighs, hips, knees). This is done to minimize the possibility of complications, such as blood loss and infection. This also shortens the length of recovery. Dr. Hanz will discuss this with you while creating your treatment plan
Will I have scarring after my surgery?
In general, body contouring surgery will leave scarring. Many patients discover that once the incisions heal, they no longer worry about scarring as the benefits are so great. A skilled, board-certified plastic surgeon, like Dr. Hanz, will make every effort to hide the appearance of scars by placing the incisions in the natural skin folds. Topical creams might be recommended to improve the healing process. In time, the scars will lighten and blend in with your normal skin.
How long will my body contouring results last?
With proper care, your body contouring results will be long-lasting. To help maintain your results, you should maintain a healthy weight. Significant weight changes or pregnancy after your body contouring surgery can impact your results. Natural aging will continue so you will eventually notice loose skin again as you get older. Talk to Dr. Hanz about suggestions that can help your results last.
